Gangeswar Temple

Your journey to enjoy the beauty of Diu will be incomplete, if you don't visit the scenic 'Gangeshwar Temple' situated just at 3 km away from Diu in Fudam village of Gujrat, India.

It is an Ancient Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Shiva, known as 'Gangeshwar  Mahadeva'. According to mythology, river Ganges descended on earth primarily from the traces of Lord Shiva and that's why he is referred to as Gangeshwar.

Lord Shiva is believed to be the chief destroyer and transformer god in Hindu religion.

The main attraction of this temple is its five 'Shiva Lingas' or rocks in the form of Lord Shiva, located in the midst of the rocks on the seashore almost into the sea and get their 'abhisheka snan' (wash before worship) by the  sea water during high tide.

It is believed that these shiva lingas were placed and worshipped by Pandava brothers of the great epic Mahabharata, during their anonymous stay in the jungle, when they were expelled for 12 years from their kingdom Hastinapur.

A 'Seshanag' (the serpent god) is carved there, above the rocks. It is believed watching over the Shiva Lingas.

As one enters the temple, they can see Lord Ganesha, Goddess Laxmi and Lord Vishnu are also there inside.

Every night when the high tide rises,  this whole temple is washed with the crystal clear tidal waves, leaving it fresh for the next day's offerings of the devotees.

It seems sea pays its true homage to the preceding deity of this place.

The serene beauty, roaring of the sea, chirping of the birds,  unfolded past along with the powerful energy of god make this place revitalising and appealing.

This is the reason, Gangeshwar Temple became one of the most famous pilgrimages and tourist spots in Gujrat and makes Diu Island a must visited place in India.
